Leader in musculoskeletal healthcare will now distribute a fully synthetic bone graft delivered in a proprietary cartridge delivery system


(Palm Beach Gardens, FL) – April 12, 2017—Zimmer Biomet Holdings, Inc. (NYSE and SIX: ZBH), a global leader in musculoskeletal healthcare, today announced the distribution of NovaBone Dental Putty through its dental division in over 40 countries within the Middle East, Africa, Latin America, Asia Pacific and select markets in Europe. NovaBone Dental Putty is manufactured by NovaBone Products, LLC. NovaBone is a fully synthetic bone graft engineered for enhanced handling and improved performance. In addition to being osteoconductive, the calcium phosphosilicate particles within the product’s formulation promote osteostimulation. NovaBone putty has over 20 years of clinical success documented by more than 50 peer-reviewed publications.1

NovaBone Dental Putty offers unique consistency, with no mixing or thawing required prior to placement.2 The putty adapts to the defect surface and allows uniform surface contact with the bony walls of the defect and eliminates over-condensation or undercondensation of the graft material.2 In addition, the product does not adhere to surgical gloves or instruments during manipulation. Precise, controlled application using a cartridge delivery system reduces waste and facilitates defect fill.

NovaBone Dental Putty is available in multiple delivery options, including pre-filled syringes and the cartridge delivery system with disposable, single-dose cartridges in .25 cc and .5 cc. The diameter of the cannula is 2.8 mm, which is ideal for dispensing the graft, especially in minimally invasive techniques such as gaps in immediate implant placement and crestal approach sinus lift procedures.

“Our new collaboration with NovaBone Products, LLC will enable us to provide new and advanced bone grafting solutions to our customers,” said Brett Deaver, Vice President, Global Marketing and Education, Zimmer Biomet Dental. “The unique osteoconductive and osteostimulatory properties of the synthetic material, and the variety of delivery options, set NovaBone Dental Putty apart in the industry. It also complements very well
our existing brands in the allograft and xenograft space.”

“NovaBone Products, LLC is very excited to partner with Zimmer Biomet Dental in a large number of dental markets. I have long believed that our technology and delivery systems will lead to great success,” said Art Wotiz, President of NovaBone Products, LLC. “Now, with the power of Zimmer Biomet Dental’s sales and marketing teams, I am confident of strong growth of the NovaBone brand. This new relationship is exclusive between NovaBone Products, LLC and Zimmer Biomet Dental. There is no relationship in place, or being considered, for the orthopaedic market.”
